Steroid injections at 37 weeksI officially made it to 35 weeks steroid injections 37 weeks pregnant This was my first real milestone, and I feel relieved to have made it this far. I went in for my biweekly NST today; the babies looked great, but my bp was a little high, so I went down to see my doctor and get a few winstrol gains done. She decided we should go ahead and plan my c-section date or induction if A decides to turn. We scheduled it for April 5 which will make me I didn't realize they did them when you were that far along. Did anyone else get steroid injections 37 weeks pregnant steroid shots at 37 weeks for babies' lung development?

Hi, Does anyone know if it is recommended to have steroid injections for a 37 week elcs? Can't seem to find a definitive answer. I am having one in 4 weeks and I've been told no steroids as it's classed as full term. Is this other people's experience? I think no steroids at that gestation is the norm.
I googled it a while ago for something and all the info I could find said that. I had an elective c-section at 36 weeks and had no steroids. Hope it all goes well. Doesn't apply to anything other than electives, because risks aren't the same once babies have experienced labour, however briefly. I had one at 37 weeks and was not offered steroids- no problems at all, but that's very interesting information from Swan Very interesting thank you all. Thank you for that swan. So it seems I wouldn't be being silly to ask again.
Am very risk averse as I lost my beautiful dd2 at 35 weeks in august last year hence the 37 wk elcs this time so I want to minimise the chance of her having any problems. I just feel bad questioning the consultant as she has been wonderfully supportive throughout this pregnancy. My DS2 was stillborn at 36 weeks which was why my last DS was born early too. Hope all goes lovely and perfectly for you. Don't ever for a second feel bad about questioning your dr.
Oh God Whatever and Ovo, it makes my blood run cold my first baby was born very poorly and could have had the same out-come. Best of luck and at least discuss the steroid option. This little baby will be just fine and as strong as an ox.
Thank you OvO and Newby. I am hoping the next 4 weeks pass uneventfully. I'm going to ask again next week if I can have them as a precaution. I asked my consultant if I could have the steroid injection as a precaution. She agreed straight away but I don't think it would have been suggested if I hadn't asked. It's worth pushing with your consultant, or asking to get a second opinion from someone else.
